The new year is just days away and we'll most of us are still trying to figure out how 2016 went by so quickly, it's time to start getting 2017 in formation. For this week's "Dope Stuff" video I've rounded up a few things that are fun, functional and oh-so-fabulous -- bascially you'll want to keep them at arms reach all year long. The Moto Razor by HeadBlade ($15) was created for men (or women) with blade heads, but it's sleek motocycle-inspired design rolls over legs and other curvy parts -- wink wink --  for a stunningly smooth shave.  I'm also loving the new skincare collection by Bobbi Brown called Remedies ($45 each). It only makes sense that the company renowned for it's flawless cosmetics would get into the business of equally flawless skincare. Check out the video to learn about my favorite items from the collection.  And last but not least Dogeared’s Maya Angelou Legacy Collection ($24-$158) is serving up just the inspiration we need for the next 365 days and beyond. Angelou's uplifting quotes are emblazoned on necklaces, bracelets, as well as handy canvas totes and cosmetic bags.  Check out the video above to learn more about all these fab finds -- and have an amazing new year!      [MUSIC] Vroom [LAUGH] This razor is called MOTO. And it's by Headblade. It's actually a razor for people with bald heads, but I love using it for my legs, My private area, wherever I need a smooth, amazing shave. I really love the free-wheeling ball because it allows it to move smoothly across my skin. It was modeled after a motorcycle. It's sexy, it's sleek, I live. We all know and love Bobby Brown for Dope cosmetics. Now the company is getting in skin care with Bobbi Brown Remedies. One of my favorites is the skin clarifier which helps tighten my pores and control any excess oil. I'm also really loving the skin salve, which is perfect for the cold weather months. Let's start the year off right with some inspiring words Especially ones from the incomparable Maya Angelou. Dogeared teamed up with Angelou's family to put some of her most famous quotes on a variety of different accessories. This pouch is one of my favorites. Nothing can dim Dim the light which shines from within. Gotta love that. I'm wishing you all a very happy and beautiful year. See you in 2017 with more dope stuff on my desk.
